A hired Assassin that was locked in a cell by Knives to train his body for twenty years in order to gain the skill and power required to kill Vash.
Monev the Gale (Or Monev the Hurricane Gale, as he is called in the manga) is #1 of the Gung-Ho Guns. He first appears in Trigun episode #12, (Diablo) and in issue #2 (chapter two) of Trigun Maximum. He was fooled many years ago (probably as a child) by an agent whom he thought to be his father. He was then "bought", (Probably by Knives, or another Gung-Ho Gun) and since then he trained for twenty years so that when he was deemed ready, he could go and take on Vash the Stampede. He uses these large guns, witch he holds on his arms, to try and kill Vash. Unfortunately for Monev, he failed when both of his guns were shot off by Vash, and his orange faceplate was destroyed by more bullets. Vash was going to kill Monev, until he remembered Rem's (his mother figure) words. Monev was spared, and left the City where he attacked Vash to supposedly live in peace. In episode #16 of Trigun, (Fifth Moon) Monev appears to be dead (As does Dominique the Cyclops) when he is shown nailed to a building wall, by the spikes of E.G. Mine. In issue #2 (chapter four) of Trigun Maximum, we see that Monev is dead, once again killed by E.G. Mine. Only this time, he was nailed to a cross by the spikes of E.G. Mine.
